Actionscript2: Split string by line length with & without word-wrap

Split string into sentences by max line length.
This uses a character array but doesn’t use word-wrapping.

var personalMessage: String = "You got this far so we reckon that you could be curious enough to learn a little more, well contact you shortly to answer any questions you may have.";
_root.myArray = new Array();
_root.myArray = personalMessage.split("");
_root.mySentences = new Array();
var currentCharCount: Number = 0;
var currentCharItem: Number = 0;
var currentCharString: String = "";
var maxLength: Number = 65;

for (var i = 0; i & lt; _root.myArray.length; i++) {
    if (currentCharCount & lt; maxlength) currentcharstring = "" += "_root.myArray[i];"
    if = ""(currentcharcount = "=maxLength" || = ""
        currentcharitem = "=(_root.myArray.length-1))" {
            = ""
            _root.mysentences.push(currentcharstring); = ""
            currentcharcount = "0;"; = ""
        } = ""
        currentcharcount++; = ""
        currentcharitem++; = ""

trace(_root.mySentences.length);
trace(_root.mySentences[0]);
trace(_root.mySentences[1]);

This outputs the following:

to learn a little more, well contact you shortly to answer
any questions you may have.
